JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
Tap at Blind Tiger. Golden beer with a thin white head. There is a very fruity/spicy aroma, pale malt with a fruity and fairly earthy yeast. Banana, clove and apple/peach. There is a light Belgian malt flavour as well. Spicy and fruity sweetness wiht a touch of pepper on the finish. Its a fairly simple beer with a Leffe-ish quality to it. Ok, but its a bit hot for my liking.

Wonderful Belgian beer. Pours a nice amber color with a huge head. Lightly hoppy and some fruit noticeable. This is a really nice "high class" beer in my opinion. I loved it.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 24, 2007
330 mL bottle. Clear golden amber with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and flowery with a hint of honey. Thick sticky palate. Taste of honey, nectar, and a sweet flowery finish. The alcohol is nicely masked, but provides a little warmth in the throat. Well balanced over all and quite good.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2007
a nice dark gold appearance with a nice depth for a triple. the taste is that of a classic belgian triple with some solid complexities and a very well balanced finish. not the best triple i have had, but very good

Very musky, bready - very belgian. Flavor is sharp, peppery. Effervescent palate. Overall, quite well-rounded and robust.

This beer impressed by being both a pretty tasty beer and fairly different from other tripels Ive had. The beer is spicy (typical) but this spice is balanced by a citrus sweetness that I found very well balanced. My notes also contain the phrase "the opposite of mellow," which I remember thinking as praise masked as criticism. Combine this with the fine carbonation and smooth mouthfeel that secondary fermentation can provide, and you have yourself a winner. This beer poured a dark straw color with a very white head. Aroma was a lot of clove combined with some zesty citrus notes. Taste was very clovey with a touch of sour. The remark in my notes "the opposite of mellow" remind me that I thought this beer was "big" but also had potential for those who age beers to become something more complex in time. A nice beer, and definitely recommended.
